Lessons

Master an enterprise project through simulated activities.

This course focuses on the execution of a simulated project. Your instructor will walk you through the evaluation of the project plan and project management life cycle. You will use the Sim4Projectsâ„¢ tool to make execution decisions and analyze team and project performance. You will discover and validate a full range of specific project management processes from building a project team through project closure (as specified in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge-Fifth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013).

Each exercise will will challenge you to make resourcing decisions toward the accomplishment of specific project activities. You will manage a virtual team of people throughout the project, including onboarding and releasing team members, directing their work, providing rewards and training, and taking disciplinary action if needed. You will also create and deliver several management reports of your team's performance and progress on the project for the project sponsor (your instructor) to review and to provide feedback. Your work to make project decisions will take place both during and outside of class time. Performance resulting from decisions made outside of class will be reported at the beginning of class the following day. Your successful completion of the course is dependent on your participation inside and outside of class and timely submission of your results.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.

Everything was great, but the instructor wasted a lot of time talking about unrelated subjects (like demo-ing different programs, talking about other classes, and talks about how Excel/technology has changed) took up way too much time. The course could have been condensed or better focus would have been great
